Our team at Artisan Building & Design has worked on countless kitchen remodeling projects, and we have seen our fair share of mistakes. In this article, we will go over a few of the most common kitchen remodeling mistakes that people make and how you can avoid them in your own project.
- Narrow Aisles- One common mistake that people make when it comes to kitchen remodeling is making the aisles too narrow. The kitchen is a central hub, and multiple people will need to move in and out with ease, so it’s important to leave enough room for them to pass by without getting in the way.
- Clearance Issues- A similar mistake that we see a lot in kitchen remodeling is not taking clearance into account, which leaves people getting blocked by fridge doors, or with dishwashers that can’t open all the way. When going over your designs for kitchen remodeling, make sure your designer goes over all entry, cabinet, and appliance doors to check that they have sufficient clearance.
- Inadequate Storage- A third common mistake in kitchen remodeling is failing to include enough storage space. You need enough room to hold all your dishes, cups, and utensils; all your cookware, prep tools, and small appliances; and of course, all your food and ingredients.
- Changing Course- The final kitchen remodeling mistake that we will cover here is changing course, or making changes in the project once work has already started. This slows the work down, increases costs, and tends to result in a disjointed final result. To avoid this, make sure you are satisfied with your plan before your contractor starts work.
